Be a Proud Nurse

By consaeditor, Jul 3 2016 01:42AM

Professor Sanchia Aranda – Cancer Council of Australia CEO - was the guest speaker at the Council of National Nursing and Midwifery Organisations (CoNNMO) which I was fortunate enough to attend as a CoNSA representative in May 2016. Sanchia gave a very inspiring presentation of nurses needing to find their voice and be proud of what we do.

Sanchia suggested the following references,so please take the time to look at them:
